It seems the base congressional salary of $174,000 per year just isn’t enough to pay for basic necessities like haircuts. That would be why the taxpayers are subsidizing their Congressional Hair Salon to the tune of over $400,000 last year.
When budget cuts are brought up congress quickly pushes military healthcare and public services into the line of fire, all the while living fat off of our wallets with unnecessary privileges such as this. In the words of Queen Marie Antoinette, “Let them eat cake!”
